Apple is neither condemning nor endorsing a plan by FreeMac.com to give away 1 million iMacs in exchange for a three-year ISP deal and a Visa credit card from First USA.
FreeMac.com, a Santa Monica, Calif.-based start up, reported today it would start giving away the multi-hued computers in September. FreeMac.com is spinning its offer differently than some of the other free PC offers. The consumer must qualify for the First USA Visa card and use it to pay a $19.95 monthly service charge to ISP Earthlink.
Jonathan Strum, FreeMac.com founder and CEO, said the credit card will help differentiate this ISP deals from the others now on the market.
Strum said Apple has agreed to supply the computers. Apple did not wish to comment on the situation.
